The website operator is probably the most interesting character .... but having him go hunting for the killer on his own was a bit much. The asthmatic detective was who had major problems with autopsy smells was an interesting touch, but the problems with his boss were by the book even though the reason was not run-of-the-mill.
The victim was ditsy, which was fine, and the perp was clever.
A proofreader would have been nice: where and were are not synonyms and there were several errors of this type (e.g. Heel/heal). This isn't a shopping list, it's a book and in a book this kind of negligence is unacceptable. Sorry.
I would have rated in higher but a few things. The end feels rushed; in fact, the killer is not named and there does not seem to be any real lead-up or clues to this person being "it". Editing and formatting were not as good as standard print fiction, though I've seen worse in Kindle books. Some things seemed unrealistic and just serving a gratuitous function (beyond the standard leeway normally given for mystery fiction).
Also, When one has to go back to check names of characters, it's generally not a good thing, I think. And the end was a quick tie up that just about anybody can see coming, not that that's bad, but the "end" was about a full page after the climax. Then the rest was ads for other books.....so like 83% to 100% was buy my other books.
Overall, the story is different, it's low cost, and it's a nice diversion for a few hours into a, at least for me, a unique aspect of humanity.
Again, I thought the book was good, and I don't regret the time I spent reading it. The ending, though, almost seemed as if it belonged to a different book.
